All of our family loved staying at this wonderful home away from home! It had everything we needed: privacy, beautiful location, close to small towns and a short drive to Santa Cruz, full kitchen with state of the art appliances, hot tub, spacious back yard, comfortable beds - we cannot say enough GREAT things about this place! We really appreciate...

Management response:

Each season holds its own gifts of beauty and adventure but the summer season is generally sold out before the end of spring so plan early and let us know...

Myself and 3 friends visited this lovely home so we could be near Santa Cruz and the boardwalk. We had a great time the house was very clean and easy to get to. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals so you're not eating out every night. Very close to a...

Management response:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to review the property. Although Santa Cruz is known for its beaches, the treasures found in the mountains for hiking, redwood trees, and art make it a year round destination area. The winters are generally filled with beautiful days with a few days of down pour...

We are located in between San Francisco and Monterey about 10 miles inland from the beaches of Santa Cruz with access to Hyw 17, Hwy 1, and Hwy 9. This easy access provides the opportunity to see the coast without lots of heavy beach traffic found in town. The costal route from San Francisco airport takes about 1/2 hour longer than Hwy 17 over the coast range but is a stunning drive.
